Anne Hathaway Shuts Down Body Shamers

Even given that the world is made up of a variety of thinkers with a wide range of opinions, we feel safe in saying that the majority of the general public would happily agree that Anne Hathaway looks fabulous and is not doing too shabby in her career. After all, she was named one of the highest-paid actresses of 2015 and has an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a British Academy Film Award, and an Emmy all tucked away under her stylish belt.

But things weren't always so rosy for Hathaway. Sources say that there was a time when this popular actress was under attack by a league of haters with the triple threat in the crosshairs of their keyboards, called "Hatha-haters."


These Hatha-haters went after Hathaway for everything imaginable like a true pack of mean girls in a style that would make Regina George weep with happy tears. Nothing was off limits including Hathaway's weight which sometimes fluctuates due to certain movie roles.

“How the world feels about me has nothing to do with me,” Hathaway said in an interview. “How other people treat me has nothing to do with me. But if anything that anybody said resonated with me as something I’d like to work on for myself, I took it in like that. And to that extent, I feel like I got to shortcut a lot of my growth. To that extent, even though I wouldn’t have chosen to go through it, I still found a way to be grateful to it.”


With all of this in mind, Hathaway recently posted a time-lapse video of herself along with a team of trainers showing off her tough workout routine on her Instagram account. Learning from what the history of haters in the past has taught her, it looks like she decided to get to the haters before they could get to her by posting the following caption, "I am gaining weight for a movie role and it is going well. To all the people who are going to fat shame me in the upcoming months, it’s not me, it’s you. Peace xx. PS - I wanted to set this to Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls" but copyright said no. Continued peace xx."

Strong body. Strong self-values. Go get 'em, girl!
